Getting out of bed at 6.00am to talk on the phone to a bunch of fully wired sailing journalists spread across three continents, probably isn’t the ideal start to a day.

Marine Photographers urged to use IPTC metadata to protect Copyright *Feature By Brendan Maxwell, Tetra-Media, 6:28 AM Fri 20 Jan 2012 GMT
There is a constant struggle to get sailing coverage in mainstream media, and the photo attribution issue does not aid that struggle.

‘I’ve spent my life in around powerboats, but as a parent, you really worry. The kids are being taught to capsize boats and they love being in the water.

Downwind trapezing on the A Class Cat - The Drum *Feature By, 2:03 AM Wed 11 Jan 2012 GMT
The new boats don’t seem to pay a huge penalty if you trapeze. With the curve boards the faster you go the more they lift so the more the boat unweights.
